Use your ECFMG ID and password to log in to IWA here https://secure2.ecfmg.org/emain.asp?app=iwa

Then click on new application as you can see here

Then in that case you have to go to OASIS and submit an application of ECFMG certification and you cannot apply to an exam yet.

The ECFMG has made new rule, you have to submit an application for ECFMG certification first before you can apply to any step.

This is different from ECFMG certificate.

This issue has been discussed before here:

Yes. Go to OASIS and apply for "application for ECFMG certification" and pay the required fees $50 then after they approve your application go to IWA and apply for the USMLE exam that you want to take.

Did they send you an email confirmation?
Did they send you instructions of what to do next?
What did you pay?
Where did you pay?
What do you mean I cannot register for USMLE Step 1?

Default No , they didn't send me

What I've done since I was trying to register to USMLE is the followings ,
They sent me ECFMG ID and Password , and IWA didn't allow me to register as there is no active link for USMLE registration !

What link you clicked on in OASIS before you pay the $50? Did you click on "apply for ECFMG Certification" or did you click on financial account and just added the money!

If you have clicked properly on ECFMG certification, the ECFMG should have sent you an email confirmation of your payment and with further instructions on what are the next steps to do.

I think it's difficult to help you further without actually looking at your OASIS and IWA account, therefore my advice for you is to call ECFMG right now and talk to a representative and they'll walk you through the steps.
